More than 100 cannabis plants have been seized after Kent Police carried out a drugs warrant in Canterbury.

Officers carried out the warrant at a property in Halstead Close on the morning of Monday 18 January 2021.

Around 101 cannabis plants were seized, as well as other items, and an investigation into the site is ongoing.

Sergeant Shelah Thompson, of Canterbury’s Community Policing Team, said: ‘Kent Police is determined to make the county a no-go area for drug dealing networks and I am pleased this warrant has seen a large amount of cannabis taken out of circulation.

‘Criminal groups would have profited from the sale of these drugs, potentially causing further crime and anti-social behaviour in the area.



‘I urge anyone who suspects drugs are being cultivated, produced or dealt in their area to report it to us by calling 101, visiting www.kent.police.uk/report, or calling 999 if a crime is in progress.’
